About the show

Playing tracks by

Brian Eno, Harold Budd, Stars of the Lid , Sonmi451 , Maps & diagrams and more.

There is a new release from Loscil called "Sketches from New Brighton." And of course it's excellent. As I listened to it I figured that Loscil would have to be one of my favorite ambient artists of all time.

That got me thinking...what are my top ten ambient artists of all time? The artists on the list are ones I come back to again and again. And also ones that have a decent sized body of work.

This mix is a collection of tracks from each of those artists. The cuts used in the mix are not necessarily my favorite track from that artist, just tunes that worked well within the mix.

00:00 Loscil - Prairie Trains
07:15 Steve Roach - Tranquility Base
13:55 Stars of the Lid - The Atomium pt 2
21:00 Harold Budd - Balthus Bemused by Color
25:25 Brian Eno - Slow Water
28:00 Maps & Diagrams - Secrets of the Shore
30:45 Kyle Bobby Dunn - The Tributary
38:03 Alio Die - Ultima Latet
50:40 William Basinski - 92982.3
55:30 Sonmi451 - Ruis

Nice selection. Five out of these ten would make my own mix of favorite ambient artists (I can hardly make a mix without Harold Budd). I'll have to investigate the others – Kyle Bobby Dunn, especially. Thanks.
